The Indians signed Mark Grudzielanek to a minor league deal, reports MLB.com's Anthony Castrovince. Grudzielanek, 39, hit .299/.345/.399 for the Royals in '08. That season ended early with an August ankle injury. The Royals surprisingly offered Grudzielanek arbitration after the season, and he declined, but they did not get a draft pick because he didn't sign until July. That minor league deal with the Twins was short-lived.
